Stripped of my spirituality
Heart and Soul
Thousands of Native Americans were forcibly removed from their families and sent to Catholic boarding schools from the 1800s through to the 1970s.
While in the boarding schools, the children were expected to assimilate into mainstream white culture, including not being allowed to speak their language and having to become Christian.
In this podcast, 4 women tell their stories of removal, abuse within boarding schools, and their healing journey, including reclaiming their traditional spiritual beliefs and practices.
